PEP’s end of year party at the Queensberry Bowling Club was held this year on the 19th December.
It was a busy day with 55 people coming along for their annual Christmas meal with PEP. The afternoon started with a welcoming drink of bubbly before sitting for the meal with the food expertly prepared by PEP’s dedicated staff and volunteers. They served up the traditional Christmas meal of pate and oatcakes followed by turkey with all the trimmings and a rich chocolate gateau with cream for pudding. Mmmmm!
The entertainment was provided by Graham, whose music and song got everyone smiling. Singing was actively encouraged with everyone joining in at every opportunity… and of course dancing to the very end.
The raffle had tonnes of prizes on offer and the lovely little plants on the tables were an ever popular raffle prize. The main raffle was for 3 hampers with an extra special large hamper to finish. They all contained a variety of food and snacks to keep the Christmas cheer going on over the holiday season.
The event was also an opportunity for PEP to recognise all the support we get throughout the year from Volunteers. This years’ ‘Volunteer of the Year’ award went to driver Jack; with the ‘Special Recognition’ award going to driver, escort and club assistant Stephen.
A special thank you must go to all the staff and volunteers who worked so hard behind the scenes in the kitchen and to all the runners getting the food on the tables for everyone to enjoy. Thank you to Graham for the music, the Queensberry Bowling Club for hosting us and providing the bar facilities, to the staff and volunteers for making the day happen and to everyone who came along.
Merry Christmas and see you all next year!
